Still kicking!

I realize I have not posted to the blog in quite a while. That is because we are primarily active on our main website:

But the meetups have been continuing and we have a lot of new faces. If you are a Seattle area chess player looking for casual over the board play, we would love to see you. Go ahead and register at the meetup site.

Currently meetups are scheduled for Mondays and Tuesdays. If you live in the Seattle area and are looking for casual chess games, visit our main meetup site:

Thursday Meetup 12/16

Fun games on Thursday. We had one new player, and more blitz games than we have previously.

Below is another game with Josh. So far I have posted a win for Josh and a draw from previous meetups, so this one is a win for me. Lots of missed opportunities in this one too. Only saving grace for me in this one was that Josh hung his queen ;-)

Monday Meetup, December 13, 2010

Once again, several interesting games. I decided to post this draw with Josh. Several missed chances in this one.  Move 45 is entertaining as I bungle a chance for a win.  Commentary is by Fritz 12, which has something of an attitude if you ask me ;-)
